It is very reliable. It is 12 years old and over 100k miles and still drives smoothly.

I just purchased my 2006 Sienna this past January, as we were expecting our 3rd child. I love the amount of space in my van. I especially like the split bench as the 3rd row seat. This still allows us to have our oldest child's car seat in the back row, but also be able to fold down the other part of the seat to fit the stroller or other items. Even though the van is 12 years old, it runs great. Also, I LOVE all of the extra compartments! I do wish that both of my sliding doors and the back door were push button, but I know the newer models have that option.

I have had my Toyota Sienna for over 10 years. I love it now as much as I did when I first got it. I always feel safe driving near and far because it has been so reliable.

My Toyota Sienna is reliable and has been free from any problems. I love the convenience of being able to load small children into the van without the strain and stretching required by other automobiles. Now that my kids are older, I love that there is still enough room for all 4 of them, plus my husband and me, to ride comfortably and have space. This minivan can transport 7 people and all of their cargo with plenty of space. I love that it holds a lot, but doesn't feel like I'm driving a gigantic automobile.

If you are planning to go on a trip, that car is perfect.

The Toyota sienna, has been one of the most comfortable vehicles that our family has had, has a smooth handling response, is perfect for trips, since its space is very wide, and one of our favorite features is that it is electric, you can open the doors with a single click on the keychain, which facilitates access if you carry something in your hands, and as for the engine, it does not give you any problems, it has been designed to last, even if you have to take care of it, now our family is happy with the car.

NHTSA Campaign:
08V244000
Summary:
TOYOTA IS CONDUCTING A SAFETY IMPROVEMENT CAMPAIGN INVOLVING 196,222 MY 2004-2006 TOYOTA SIENNA VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH POWER REAR LIFTGATE STRUTS. THE GAS STRUTS USED TO HELP LIFT AND SUPPORT THE REAR POWER LIFTGATE COULD WEAR OUT SOONER THAN EXPECTED.

Consequence:
IF NOT REPAIRED, THE GAS STRUTS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE WEIGHT OF THE LIFTGATE WHEN IT IS OPEN EVENTUALLY, THE GAS STRUTS COULD DETERIORATE TO THE POINT THAT THE LIFTGATE WILL FALL ABOUT TEN INCHES AFTER IT REACHES THE FULLY OPEN POSITION, AT WHICH POINT THE POWER MOTOR WILL ENGAGE AND POWER THE LIFTGATE TO THE FULLY CLOSED POSITION. THIS CONDITION MAY CAUSE INJURY TO A PERSON WHO IS STRUCK BY THE LIFTGATE WHEN IT FALLS OR WHEN IT IS CLOSING.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE GAS STRUTS WITH NEWLY DESIGNED GAS STRUTS THAT HAVE A LONGER SERVICE LIFE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-888-270-9371.
